Passing through and decided to try it. Was not disappointed. Decor is similar to a basic diner. However...Waitstaff was superb, salsa delicious, and the meals were very satisfying. Would definitely go again!

We had heard so much about this restaurant and were terribly disappointed. Tremendously over-hyped. Least interesting red and green chili. Flies were a terrible nuisance.

I have been to Jerry's a few times and have never been disappointed. Try the Rib Eye Steak smothered in Green Chili. It may sound strange but it was incredible. If I could make green chili like that I would eat it 5 nights a week! Enchilatas (flat) are great also. The place is always packed even on weeknights, so... More

We had a couple options for lunch but after reading some reviews we chose Jerry's Cafe & we weren't disappointed! My husband had Jerry's Special, a high quality hamburger steak with your choice of green or red chile sauce, he loved it! I had Mexican Pizza, Navajo fry bread with meat, cheese, guacamole, lettuce & tomato again with choice of... More

I cannot say enough positive things about this restaurant! We were traveling through Gallup and read the glowing reviews on another site. Service was awesome and food was OUTSTANDING! As a native new Mexican myself, I highly recommend! Also, bring cash as native American artisans shop their wares in a very tasteful manner throughout your meal. This was by far... More

We arrived in Gallup fairly late, and on recommendations we headed to Jerry's. The restaurant was full of locals, the service was quick and our meals were generously portioned (you could share). A great local eatery.

Authentic New Mexican, Mexican food. Mostly locals and a few tourists. Look around to see what the other people are eating for ideas. It's all good. Jerry's allow local native artisans to orbit the restaurant and sell their treasures. They don't push anything on you and a simple nod of the head is all that you have to do to... More

Driving across country and unfamiliar with local food in Gallup it was one of a very few places open late at night and YELPERS gave it great reviews. It really was a great find off the beaten path good prices authentic food. One of the last Mexican/NewMexican meals we would have for a long time. If in Gallup you won't... More
